If I am doing "creative writing" then I tend to let my mind run away with me, but I never share the stuff I write, not to anyone. Not that I don't mind critique, but I just don't like the thought of someone reading it and either laughing, shaking their head, or generally thinking it's shit.
I do it for me, mostly.
But writing aside, I can't draw, I can't paint, I can't dance, sing, sculpt, sketch... An empty vessel, devoid of any skills at all.
I started to use Instagram on the day it was released for Android. I'm not sure why - there are plenty of similar apps on the Market that do a similar job, but it seemed quite popular, so I gave it a bash. I've not taken many pictures with it yet, and I am still getting to grips with it. I like the filters, but I dislike the size limitations - my phone takes pictures in HD, large megapixel - but Instagram doesn't like that, and has to resize them...
Still... While out and about, I often see something that I think, "That'll be a nice picture" and give it a quick clickity-click with the camera. With Instagram, I can fiddle with the filters, see which I like, click upload, and job done - picture online.
Like I say, I've only taken a few, but earlier, after taking Tam to Beavers, as I was crossing a bridge, I thought "Hmm that'll be interesting" and took a snap of the railway lines, stuck a filter on it, and uploaded it.
When I got in, I looked at the picture on the computer screen, and I don't know why, but I really like it. It's kinda gloomy and moody, but I LIKE it.
I'm no photographer, I literally took ONE snap and adjusted it, but I like what I see..

I use my Tumblr site to upload and host the photos, so if you're that interested, go take a peek!
